After Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner failed to notice a big host on Twitch from FIFA professional Kurt ‘Kurt0411’ Fenech, the soccer-sim star lashed out online. Reacting to the recent controversy, the ‘T2P’ duo couldn’t help but laugh at the situation.

At the conclusion of a January 18 broadcast, popular FIFA pro Kurt0411 decided to send his viewers to the Call of Duty scene by hosting one of the biggest names online, Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL. 


In the midst of a heated scrim, the alert went unnoticed by the CoD pro as he continued to focus on the match at hand. Sparking an outrage online, Kurt0411 claimed that he would “never” raid “another CoD streamer ever again.” Reacting in their next set of scrims, FormaL and Scump made a mockery of the situation and laughed at the controversy.

With just under 100,000 followers to his name on Twitch, the FIFA player sent 2,155 viewers over to FormaL as he signed off. In the midst of a Hardpoint match on Hackney Yard when the host came through however, the veteran CoD pro was focused on his match and not at all paying attention to any alerts, as is common practice throughout the scene for those who stream.


Taking personal offense at the lack of acknowledgment, Kurt0411 lashed out on Twitter stating that “just because you’re lucky enough to be playing a game without delay doesn’t mean you shouldn’t acknowledge a raid triple your viewers. F**k Scump and FormaL.”

With essentially the entire CoD community turning out in support of the duo, the Chicago Huntsmen players laughed off the issue in their latest streams on January 19. “That guy that toasted us is getting toasted,” FormaL joked. “Everyone’s got our back bro,” Scump quickly responded.

“He hosted me mid-map so what do you expect? Thank you, thank you,” Scump amusingly joked, impersonating the FIFA streamer.


“I literally was like, ‘thanks for the host’ mid-game, and I look at my chat again and just see a bunch of rats being spammed. Ungrateful, ungrateful…I was like holy sh*t what the f**k’s happening?” FormaL amusingly added before focusing up on the next map in the series.

Deciding not to let the drama go, despite being called a “grade A prick” by Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow, Kurt0411 doubled down and pushed out another controversial tweet. This time, he was complaining about Scump and FormaL’s Twitch “mods timing out all the viewers [he] sent.”


“1 tweet and got the entire COD community on strings, all chatting when they don’t even know what happened. Yeah our game might be made by the worst company in the world but we still have triple your viewers.”


Evidently not at all phased by the situation, the CoD pros continued on with their practice as per usual in order to warm up for the opening set of matches in the Call of Duty League.


Regardless of how Twitch viewership turns out as the 2020 season kicks off on January 24, it appears that Kurt0411 will not be among those tuned in to the very first Chicago Huntsmen match.

Black Ops Cold War Beta players on consoles can finally change their field of view settings thanks to a welcome addition by Treyarch. Here’s everything you need to know about the new options, including what the best setting is.

Field of view options for consoles is something that fans have been asking for for a long time. Whenever a new CoD game releases, there’s always a section of PlayStation and Xbox players wondering why the option hasn’t been made available for them. It’s equally frustrating considering that the PC version of every iteration has had the options available on day one.


This is all changing with Black Ops Cold War, however, as Treyarch has confirmed that players on consoles will finally be able to adjust their field of view. For people unfamiliar with the options, this might be a bit confusing. Taking advantage of these settings, however, might end up helping your game.

What is field of view?

At its most basic form, field of view is how much of the game you see on your screen. A lower FOV means you’ll see less, while a higher field of view means you’ll see more.


While some people might immediately say that a high field of view is automatically better, it’s important to note that the higher the field of view, the more distorted your screen will look and the smaller objects will look at a distance.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to balance you’re field of view with what your comfortable looking at.

How do I adjust my FOV settings?

In the beta, finding the FOV slider is relatively simple but in case you don’t know, here’s a quick and simple guide to figure it out.

  1. In your Black Ops Cold War Beta application, press the buttons for “Settings”
  2. Tab over to the “Graphics” options
  3. Scroll down until you see “Field of View”
  4. Adjust the slider from left to right to set to your desired setting.
The Field of View can be can be adjusted in the game settings.

What’s the ideal field of view setting?

If you’ve never played with a modified field of view before, it might be best to take things slow. Working your way up will allow you to adjust to the higher FOV so that you’re not thrown into the deep in, so to speak.

In order to have a high FOV, while making sure that you can still see enemies, it’s recommended to keep your adjusted setting at 100. While you can certainly push it all the way up to 120, the former will allow you to experience the changes without it being too difficult to see things at a distance.
